[IC] GMK Lilac on Black | Small fixes
« on: Mon, 25 October 2021, 20:43:13 »



Welcome to the Interest Check for my first keycap set, GMK LoB (Lilac on Black). This is a very simple keycap set that came out of me realizing I really want a simple Lilac on Black set and there being none at all.


For any questions you can find me on Discord as Sax#2295

UPDATES:

Quote
11/24
-Revamped katakana sublegends, I noticed several of the legends were wrong so I decided to use an existing asset for them
-Made small fixes on some errors in numpad (It was missing a barred 5 and the scoop had no scoop)
-Updated renders with katakana subs to show the new sublegends

11/02
-Removed renders with mono katakana alphas and added a render with accent space bar

10/31
-Dropped the Mono Katakana kit. Unfortunately running two alt alphas kits would very likely result in one not reaching MOQ, and the Mono Katakana set just wasn't popular enough to risk keeping it.
-Added NorDeUK kit to further increase compatibility, one of the main goals for this set was to have as much compatibility with as few kits as possible, the base kit will maintain basic ISO support.
-Added a Row 2 escape key for the basic 40s support.
-Revamped the Space Bar kit, removed the unnecessary 1.75u space bars as well as 1 of the 1.25u space bars, added a 1u space bar and Accent color 6.25u and 7.00u space bars, also removed the non centered 6.00u space bar as it was not necessary.


Please fill out the IC form below if you are interested in this set, any feedback is appreciated.

Love the base kit kitting and the colors. Definitely a yes for me. If I was to change one thing, I would add an alt mods kit, I have had this issue with a lot of sets where there is an alphas kit besides the main kit and buying them just leaves us with additional alphas being useless. If an alt mods kit is offered one can buy additional alphas and the mod kit to get an additional set without wasting anything!

Im certain I will get this, I agree I would like to have some extra mods so I can use the alt alphas in more keyboards, but other than that I really like the set, GLWIC

I enjoy the set over all! I'm not sure that two different alt alphas would hit moq, so maybe consider that. An extension kit would be nicer than two alt alphas imo, even though they tend to fair poorly on gmk.

Love it, icon mods would be ideal, but since purple is my favorite it's very tempting. Lilac pattern mat and aluminum/brass artisan collab would be a nice addition as well, GL.

cool but not a fan of the alpha-only child kits. I'd pick up the katakanas if it was a full fledged base kit, like GMK Dualshot and DMG R3 just did. please consider it.

I love this! I asked in the IC, but as a Mac user who uses WKL, could there perhaps be a 1.5u super/code key in the base set? Or perhaps an icon mods kit or specific mac os kit?

Hello again everyone.

Based on the feedback received in the past couple of days I have made some slight changes to kitting.

Updates:

-Dropped the Mono Katakana kit. Unfortunately running two alt alphas kits would very likely result in one not reaching MOQ, and the Mono Katakana set just wasn't popular enough to risk keeping it.
-Added NorDeUK kit to further increase compatibility, one of the main goals for this set was to have as much compatibility with as few kits as possible, the base kit will maintain basic ISO support.
-Added a Row 2 escape key for the basic 40s support.
-Revamped the Space Bar kit, removed the unnecessary 1.75u space bars as well as 1 of the 1.25u space bars, added a 1u space bar and Accent color 6.25u and 7.00u space bars, also removed the non centered 6.00u space bar as it was not necessary.

UPDATE:

I am aware of the double accented arrows will fix ASAP accent arrows fixed

I second this, especially the (katakana?) sublegend as a second base, as well as icon only mods.

1u alt is there right under the ISO enter.

I am well aware of that. Perhaps, I should have been more clear as I assumed the Super ask would have implied that.

Will need 2x 1U Alts with 2x 1.5U supers.
If NorDeUK is added, will need 1U AltGr too :P

Moving numpad to its own kit makes it ~ $50 more expensive for people that want numpad. When I joined GH the only people using numpad were legacy users on old keyboards but now there are a lot of customs that are using it.

Pretty much this, having numpad adds basically no cost, moving it to its own kit adds cost for anyone that does want it.

would love to see some love for macos users. even an extension kit (which would selfishly get me an R1 "=" key and an R3 1.75u "Function" key). and i'm wondering what happened to the "5" key in numpad?

Nice but will need 1.5U Supers (+1u alt) :)
